Noxeema Jackson

Although Noxeema Jackson is a fictitious character (Wesley Snipes in drag) from the 1995 box office hit To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar, the character is one of the most memorable drag personalities ever. Along with Chi-Chi Rodriguez (John Leguizamo) and Vida Boheme (Patrick Swayze), Miss Jackson departs on a cross country trip to enter the "Drag Queen of the Year" contest. To Wong Foo was a rare Hollywood film with A-list stars centered around drag culture. The film is true to Noxeema's No. 1 rule for becoming a drag queen: "Larger than life is just the right size."
